LEADERS IN TRAINING (LIT)

AGES 13-15


The Leaders in Training Program (LIT) will provide participants ages 13-15 the opportunity to learn readily-applicable leadership skills that go beyond just camp. Participants will spend part of their time doing hands-on work at camp, such as leading games and crafts or helping camp staff with other activities. The 2nd half of the day, they will spend time learning about important leadership skills whether on a field trip or through activities. LITs will always be with an adult counselor.
